Thank god for animal stories. While a
Kangaroo faces a competition enquiry, a
Giraffe leads a dash for freedom in Amsterdam,
And tigers select a new coach.
In politics, a TV chef loses the chicken vote,
Which inspires a turkey’s slow motion coup.
Closer to home, a kind crocodile birdman is to raise funds
To ensure a new partner is found by a golden eagle
And that the whale meet ends with peace agenda.
Surprisingly, biometrics picks up the penguins.
This is a found text poem in response to a prompt at readwritepoem, based on newspaper headlines that I came across today that either genuinely or apparently have a connection to animals.
